|Hiv and anal warts
Aug 21, 2005
I don't know if this fits in this foruym but I am kind of desperate for answers.
I have Hiv and I was recently diagnosed for anal warts. I am receiving treatment but I've read different things: one article said that most people eventually pass HPV virus within 2 years. The other said it is with you always and can recur at any time.
Does Hiv impact HPV and does my drug regimen of truvada/viramune help at all with this?

Thanks for your post.
It's not uncommon for persons with HIV to have chronic or recurring genital or rectal warts. Having a lower immune function (or CD4 count) is a risk factor for greater numbers or severity of outbreaks.
To this end, being on an effective antiretroviral regimen should improve your symptoms.
Thanks for reading. BY
